John Gosden Top 5 Moments in Racing

John Gosden Top 5 Moments in Racing

It’s fair to conclude, that in the past couple of season’s, John Gosden has put himself amongst the very best. He has now trained over 3,000 winners worldwide, including winners of the Breeders' Cup Classic, the Derby, the Arc, the King George, the Eclipse, and over 600 winners in the United States.
Based in Clarehaven Stables, Newmarket, Gosden has trained the winners of over 100 Group 1 races in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. His reputation for honesty and openness has led him to be called “one of the sport’s great communicators”. What are his top five moments in the sport?

Stradivarius 2018

A son of the great Sea The Stars, Stradivarius provided John Gosden with a £1 million bonus this year, after winning a key trial at York, followed by the Ascot Gold Cup, Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale Cup. The Ascot Gold Cup was Gosden’s first success, and few would had not reckoned on the class and durability of this horse. A gutsy, classy, stayer, Stradivarius is a short price for the Long Distance Cup on British Champions Day which will cap off a sensational season - looking to provide Gosden with a third success.

Kingman 2014

Kingman – who has since gone on to be a very successful sire, enjoyed much success for John Gosden in 2014 as a three-year-old. He won the Group 1 Irish 2000 Guineas, St. James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, followed by the Sussex Stakes and Prix Jacques le Marois. Kingman’s promise was known as a juvenile when he won a maiden by six lengths, and Gosden will know as well as anyone, that horses like this do not come round that often.

Golden Horn 2015

Another horse with a star 3yo campaign was Golden Horn, who won The Derby and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in 2015. In a racing career which lasted two days over a year, he won seven of his nine races and was never beaten by a male horse. He was bred in England by owner Anthony Oppenheimer, and was arguably one of the greatest to be situated at Clarehaven stables. He also won the Eclipse Stakes and the Irish Champion Stakes, and his first crop are expected to be seen at the racetrack soon. A real Gosden flagbearer.

Enable 2017/18

You run out of adjectives to describe this outstanding daughter of Nathaniel – another from Gosden’s yard of the past. Enable has been a magnificent testament to John Gosden’s yard and his team. She has won the Arc twice, along with a string of other big race successes, including the King George, and quadruple Oaks winner. She now heads to the Breeders’ Cup Turf to add more prize money to the pot, but every racing fans has their fingers crossed that she remains in training for next season to pursue a third Arc.

Too Darn Hot 2018

Just like any racing trainer, there is always one eye on the future, and Gosden already has his mind set on next season’s classics. Too Darn Hot is now a short-priced favourite for the 2000 Guineas in May, despite the 2yo male division being very heavily contested. This son of Dubawi and Dar Re Mi (prev. Gosden), won the Dewhurst with ease, and looks to be the real deal. Who knows where this horse could take Gosden next? Roaring Lion - who could not make our shortlist, has arguably been the star of this flat racing season. Could Too Darn Hot be the next big thing? Time will tell.
